Lynn , & to all those who sent in money I'll be there on the 24th & will return all the checks that were sent to me then. Sorry I didn't get them back to all before hand ,but because of some of my health concerns I wasn't able to be will do so this weekend. Thanks Rex.

If you have any doubt about coming to the 45th reunion, cast it away!  We wait five, long years to see one another and catch up, and as we have realized way, way too much recently, there is no guarantee that the people you really want to connect will still be with us.

I sincerely feel you will have a huge regret when you 'could' have come to the reunion but "chose" not to join the Great Viking Class of 1974 baby.

.Life has once again gotten in the way of the best laid plans and I am unable to attend.   Please use my deposit where best it fits, this reunion or Our Fabulous Fiftieth!  Missing seeing all and know that the next five years will pass all too fast.   Have a wonderful time!

Sorry to hear you can't make it in, Anne, I know you'd hoped to! We'll do our best to take pictures to share with everyone!

Terri, what time does the party start & do you want me there a bit early to help with anything ? I can I't s just that i don't like to talk to much as I don't like people to see me without my teeth & it's a bit imbarrasing to have some see me that way. I guess it's just vanity.

But please let me know the time so I can come & help seeing how I got this started & had to back out, but i do want to help.

Terri Bayles (Howells)

Hi Rex,

We're starting at 6:00p. Thanks for the offer of help, but there's really not much to do, so no need to arrive early. Hope your recovery is going well!

See you tomorrow :)

 thanks for reunion party... was worth it just to see who did get there and what they are doing. thanks again to  all those who helped and did keep this reunion together. ya never know who ya might see and remember. i didnt forget who anybody was  there. a few  who i didnt know much from 1974  took awhile to figure out but did before leaving. i told those i knew who said they wouldnt come it was  something they  will regret one way or other  before the 50 reunion. i couldnt wait to graduate and finish all the school stuff never thought i would like the reunion  thing but  some of us i thought about out of nowhere  and somebody i saw at jobs would say they had relatives from the class . suppose that is what meeting again  triggers the reunion thoughts. guess that wont stop.  thanks again for party.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped make our Niles HS Class of '74 reunion event a success! Thanks to all who contributed $$$ to the bar tab - especially Steve Bender and Dave Smith! Thanks to Melody Conrad for bringing the amazing desserts. Thanks to Mike Peters for the beautiful flowers. Thanks to Rex Carpenter for getting the ball rolling. And thanks to everyone who took time out of their weekend to attend!! It was so great to see you all!
Also, Steve Bender had a great idea to make this an annual get together. We ain't gettin' any younger - so why wait for the 50th Gala! Scheduling for the 3rd or 4th Saturday in August seems like a good place to start. If you have a preference let us know.

I like Steve’s idea❣️

Talked towards the end of the reunion about meeting at Martins on the 2nd Wednesday of each month for coffee, soda, water, whatever. Maybe around 8:00?

Tom Houseman

I like what Joe is saying...if I lived close enough I'd show up at Martin's simply to get a muffin! Never have found any place else that makes muffins as well as Martin's does.

Wonderful night! Super job pulling this together! 

Great energy - was so cool to open that door and see the place full of peeps chattering and lots of laughter! So many fun rememberances of teachers and events.

Look forward to more connecting - and yes, certainly before the Fab 50th!

Anne Rigby (Haley)

I love it also!  If I get the to area, I'll know where to go -- except what is Martins?!


08/28/19 08:03 AM #4085    


Terri Bayles (Howells)

Ha! Good question :) It's a grocery store - in the fashion of today, with a deli, bakery, restaurant seating, etc.

Terri Bayles (Howells)

Joe, is that am or pm??

08/28/19 11:33 AM #4087    

Joe Paquette

 8:00 AM. If that woks. We can discuss it, but need to start somewhere if enough are interested. In a perfect situation we will increase it to every two weeks or weekly but let’s try it out 1st and hopefully word will get out. Sorry, I figure if I know where and what Martins is, everyone does!🤷‍♂️ Unfortunately this won’t work for those who are still working but don’t think we would get many if we had it on the weekends. So............
